Abu Unity Foundation is a proud partner of the Virginia Coalition for Transforming Police. The Va Coalition for Transforming Police is a Black-led, multi-racial coalition, consisting of 50+ organizations committed to re-imagining policing of our Black communities and our Black children. For decades, Black communities have been over-policed and under-resourced. We are collaborating with other Virginians throughout the state to find ways to divest funds from law enforcement and redirect those funds to community support services that'll treat the triggers stemming from generations of unaddressed trauma that lead to the commission of a crime.
Learn how to write a letter to your representative or to the editor about the issues that concern you most. Making your issues known is the first step to working together to create solutions.
There are times where you have a lot to say but no time to say it in. Catching your elected official between meetings or a news reporter asking you your stance on an issue and you only have 30 seconds to make a statement. This training provides tips on crafting your elevator speech.
The training provided in the videos is powered by the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence education to action toolkit. The Ed Fund's Ed2Act toolkit offers instructions on setting up a letter-writing workshop or a phone bank event. It also provides sample language and templates to use as a resource. If you'd like to receive group training, please contact us. (group training need a minimum of 10 participants and will be done via Zoom during the pandemic). Find out more about the Ed Fund here
